Modeling Heterogeneity in Bivariate Survival Data by Compound Poisson Distribution using Bayesian Approach

  author={David D. Hanagal and Alok D. Dabade},
Shared frailty models are often used to model heterogeneity in survival analysis. There are certain assumptions about the baseline distribution and distribution of frailty. In this paper, we consider compound Poisson distribution as frailty distribution and three different baseline distributions namely, Weibull, generalized exponential and exponential power distribution. With these three baseline distributions, we propose three different compound Poisson shared frailty models. To estimate the… 


A Distribution for Multivariate Frailty Based on the Compound Poisson Distribution with Random Scale
The compound Poisson distribution is used as the random factor in the frailty model, which allows some individuals to be non-susceptible, which can be useful in many settings.
A Weibull Regression Model with Gamma Frailties for Multivariate Survival Data
A flexible baseline hazard model based on a correlated prior process is proposed and is compared with a standard Weibull model to find an appropriate model for the baseline hazard function.
Modeling heterogeneity for bivariate survival data by the compound poisson distribution
This work proposes bivariate Weibull regression model with heterogeneity (frailty or random effect) which is generated by compound Poisson distribution and develops large sample tests for testing no frailty and significance of regression parameters.

Theory & Methods: Generalized exponential distributions
The three‐parameter gamma and three‐parameter Weibull distributions are commonly used for analysing any lifetime data or skewed data. Both distributions have several desirable properties, and nice
Analysis of Multivariate Survival Data
This book showed how one can implement all the above mentioned models in survival analysis through the S-plus and SAS packages, such as ordered and unordered multiple events per subject.
REML estimation for survival models with frailty.
A method of estimation for generalised mixed models is applied to the estimation of regression parameters in proportional hazards models for failure times when there are repeated observations of
A model for association in bivariate life tables and its application in epidemiological studies of familial tendency in chronic disease incidence
SUMMARY The application of Cox's (1972) regression model for censored survival data to epidemiological studies of chronic disease incidence is discussed. A related model for association in bivariate
